marketbag4The Everett Farmers Market is requesting that “Vendors” no longer use Single-use Plastic Carryout Bags.

110216_plasticBagSeveral types of bags are used at farmers markets for varying purposes. T-shirt bags, also known as carryout or carry bags have two handles and are generally made of flimsy plastic. These are most common, are white and opaque or translucent, though some are clear or virtually transparent. They range in size from small bags that could just fit a punnet of raspberries to larger ones that could hold a big bunch of celery. Their primary characteristic is that they have handles and so can be used for carrying anything from one apple to multiple other bags containing produce.
